Bonsai claim by cannabis grower.
A failed asylum seeker found with 200 cannabis plants in a Wrexham house claimed he thought they were bonsai trees.
Min Wang 27, of Kensington, Liverpool, told Mold Crown Court the plants, with a potential annual growing value of £400,00 were part of a get rich quick bonsai tree business.
But the jury did not believe his story and he was yesterday convicted of producing the Class B drug and was jailed for three and a half years.
The judge said that he did not regard Wang as simply a gardener who watered the plants.
Prosecutor Owen Edwards branded the defendant's bonsai story as pure nonsense.
